Beta-carotene, vitamin E and more help fight skin problems in kids and signs of aging in adults

Beta-carotene, vitamin E, folic acid and iron reduced eczema; coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) reduced inflammation and wrinkles; and vitamins B and E lightened hyper-pigmentation in several new studies.

In a nutrition study, doctors said that the itchy, red, scaly skin of eczema in newborns and young children is an early sign of allergy. Researchers measured the diets of 180 five-year-olds with eczema and 242 without eczema and found that those who got the most beta-carotene, vitamin E, folic acid or iron were about 60 percent less likely to have eczema compared to kids who got the least of these nutrients.
